Philippine storm toll rises to 43 as hopes fade for dozens missing

from New Straits Times

The death toll from a tropical storm that pummeled the central Philippines rose to 43 with hopes fading for dozens of others still missing after massive landslides, authorities said Tuesday. Slow-moving Kai-Tak finally swept out to the South China Sea on Monday after inducing days of heavy rain that led to deadly floods and landslides as it sliced across the central islands last weekend. The government’s disaster monitoring agency listed 43 dead in an updated tally and said 45 other people were still missing, many of them feared buried by mud avalanches that struck the small island of Biliran. more
